The terrorist attack in Manchester and the increased national threat level has created anxiety and uncertainty across the UK. Sadly following previous terrorist incidents, there have been hate offences carried out against minority communities. There is never any reason why someone should tolerate abuse because of who they are. Action will be taken against anyone who commits any form of hate crime and Warwickshire Police will proactively deal with these incidents.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of hate crime, please tell someone.
- Report it to the police
- Report it to Victim Support. They can listen in confidence and offer information, practical help and emotional support.
If you have any specific worries about tensions in your local community we would urge you to contact your local police.
